Sangria: Jungle Fever

I'm behind on showcasing my weekly sangrias. Here'e what I made for Labor Day weekend:


1 bottle Cabernet

1 bottle Chardonnay

1/2 c banana liqueur

1c MD 20/20 "Banana Red" flavor

Frozen blueberries and blackberries


The whole time I was creating this batch the "Jungle Fever" tune kept playing in my head so the name stuck.


Verdict: No more bananas in my wine! This is the 2nd time I've created a drink using the banana liqueur and the 2nd time I've had 'mixed' feelings about it.


This is a strong batch. I kept getting a headache every time I drink it. I think the 20/20 is to blame too. That is one ghetto, cheap wine cooler. I brought it from the liquor store in the hood and figured: 'what the heck'.


Heck NO!


This is the first time I did not finish my sangria. I got like 1/2 vase left. I just may chuck it down the drain.


(Yes, I create all my sangria's using a flowe vase. Who gon' check me, boo?)


I can already see my mama *side eyeing* me and giving me lip. Wasting all that good likka is not an option.


Who wants a sip?
